Coram Williams joins Guardian Media Group board

Coram Williams: "I feel honoured to be invited to serve on the board of an institution as iconic and important as GMG."

Coram is currently chief financial officer of Pearson, the world’s leading education company, a position he has held since August 2015. Previously he was CFO of Penguin Random House, the world's largest consumer publisher, and prior to that CFO of the Penguin Group.

Coram began his professional career at Autocar, the motoring magazine, as a news reporter and road tester.

Neil Berkett, chair of GMG, said: “Coram has an impressive track record and we’re delighted that he has chosen to join the GMG board. At a time of rapid change and challenges to our traditional business model, Coram’s financial expertise, alongside those of his fellow board members, will ensure we continue on the right track to protecting the Guardian’s ground-breaking journalism in perpetuity.”

Coram Williams said: “"I feel honoured to be invited to serve on the board of an institution as iconic and important as GMG. Despite a challenging market, the role that the Guardian plays in society is more vital than ever. I’m very excited about joining such an experienced Board and drawing on my background and skills to help the Guardian fulfil its mission.”

GMG is wholly owned by The Scott Trust Limited, which exists to secure the financial and editorial independence of the Guardian in perpetuity.
